Egg hunts scheduled around the area this weekend

Several places are hosting egg “hunts” this weekend and we put “hunt” in parenthesis for a reason. The hunt last year at Loyal Heights was over and done with in about 30 seconds.

  • The Loyal Heights Community Center (2101 NW 77th St) invites kids 18 months to 10 years old to participate in their spring candy and egg hunt. Kids two and younger will be in the gym while the older kids will be outside. The event takes place rain or shine and starts at 10 a.m. sharp Saturday morning. Non-perishable food donations will be collected.
  • The Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW) will also host an egg hunt for kids 2 to 10 on Saturday morning. Fun starts at 10 a.m. sharp. Non-perishable food donations will be collected.
  • On Sunday, neighbors are invited to the Easter egg hunt at Ballard Corners Park. Bring plastic eggs filled with goodies to hide in the park at 10:15. Kids will be let loose at 10:30 a.m. in waves from youngest to oldest.
  • Woodland Park Zoo hosts its annual Bunny Bounce for ages 1-8 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. There are crafts, bunny encounters, entertainment and other animal enrichment programs throughout the day. It’s included with zoo admission. “For the health and well being of zoo animals, candy will not be placed inside the eggs – egg hunt participants will receive their treats as they exit the zoo,” the zoo release states.

    I once wrote of one of these grab-fests that if there was a less Christian way of celebrating Easter, I didn't want to know about it :-)
